“Prithvi Shaw is someone who likes to go hard at the ball and play brutal strokes” – Salman Butt
The former Pakistan captain recently discussed about Prithvi Shaw. Also in the video, he opined that Prithvi Shaw has an amazing opportunity to deliver a good performance in England. Butt stated :
“Prithvi Shaw has an opportunity in England to prove why many people rate him so highly. But he could struggle in England given that his footwork is not all that good. In England, even batsmen with the best of footwork sometimes have a tough time, especially when the ball swings.”

“Prithvi Shaw is someone who likes to go hard at the ball and play brutal strokes. It is evident from the way he bats that he enjoys belting the ball. But in England, you have to be a bit careful. You cannot just take on the bowlers without taking into account the movement and the conditions. Prithvi Shaw will have to review this aspect of his game,” concluded Butt.
